Welcome to Librarium Online!
I know that unit selection can depend on mission, points limit, etc....but I just want to know which way people are inclined to lean given a choice between the railgun toting units. I'm not a tau player but I do have a good friend who is and we have come to the conclusion that the hammerhead is a first choice over broadsides, especially with a multi tracker and decoy launchers.
The enemies of the Emperor fear many things. They fear discovery, defeat, despair and death. Yet there is one thing they fear above all others. They fear the wrath of the Space Marines!
Not every enemy is SMurfs. Hammerhead all the way.

Protect your frailty in a Mechanical body.
Remove your frailty with mobility.
Hide your frailty in a body unseen.
you can play all piddley with either of them and ill just take a manta or two But hey thats just me. but if you would restrict me so i would have to go with the Broadsides.

Hammerhead, being able to zoom about and drop submunitions templates where I want is key.
Sarchasm: the gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the fool who doesn't get it.
I didn't participate in the poll, because I don't lean in either direction until I know what the circumstances are. However, since my antiarmor is almost exclusively broadsides, you'll probably see me using broadsides over a hammerhead in low point games.
For if one gave, he dared assert
He knew that man was repentant
For many a man is so hard of heart
He cannot weep even though he suffers sorely
hammerhead all the way
move and shoot is what its all about, being able to move 12" and fire the big gun really puts the fear in people

Fast + Bigguns=delicious unit, I choose hammerhead

Submunitions are not all that great really. Especially not for the cost of a Hammerhead. I own one for my Tau army cause I think it looks pretty cool, but I don't think I'll be using it anytime soon.
Broadsides are cheaper and more useful IMO.
the sub munition is holy against horde armies and eldar and does nasty things to large squads of marines too
